Sorry to interupt the political flow - but discussion here on SDRL
I do wish the political discussion went elsewhere. On SDRL - we know the next 6 months to a year is going to be tough for the deep water drillers. The company thinks that they can keep the divi solid for the next year. So why wouldn't investors ride this through collecting their 11% divi with hopes of a 50% or more capital gain. Great vehicle for people a few years away from retirement. If it doesn't work out - you work a couple more years. if it works - then you get 11% on your money. That is 110 k a year on a million dollar retirement or 55 k on half a million.
Isnt there a board for that? This here, just happens to be the BAC message board. Don't know how one's fingers could be so genetically mutated as to accidently press the BAC keys on their keyboard instead of the S, D, R, and L.. but we are compassionate towards disabled folks here, and will direct you to the correct message board.
